It’s certainly been an enormously busy year for the team at Llewellyn Communications. Not only have we launched a new website, welcomed a new team member (introducing Veda Dante, one of our content creators extraordinaire!) and worked on some wonderful campaigns, but we also took a night out at the end of October to celebrate our 15th anniversary. And what better way to celebrate than to enjoy Australia’s most awarded restaurant, Quay.
It was a sensational evening and allowed us to reflect on the year and, indeed, the past 15 years.
Speaking of 15 years, in October we worked on a fundraising campaign for the Royal Institute for Deaf and Blind Children (RIDBC) to promote its 15th Qantas Pathways Charity Flight. The annual flight raises much needed funds for RIDBC, which assists over 6500 children and adults with vision or hearing loss, and their families, across Australia.
This year’s flight saw 180 passengers fly to Tasmania for the day, taking in the sights and sounds of Hobart’s Salamanca Markets before they enjoyed a leisurely ferry trip down the Derwent to the MONA (Museum of Old and New Art). While at the MONA, guests were able to wander around the exhibits, not to mention be treated to a sumptuous 3-course lunch created with local produce. Joining passengers on this special return flight from Sydney to historic Hobart was Tasmanian Brand Ambassador and well-known media celebrity, Ray Martin, in addition to distinguished ABC radio presenter, Simon Marnie. The event raised $110,000 and brings to almost $1.3 million raised since the first flight took off 15 years ago.
